Sun shines for vets on Memorial Day By Eve Britton, Lauren Sievert, and Savannah Mu Special to The Citizen Parades were as prominent as picnics throughout the Meriden area Monday , May 27, on a sunny Memorial Day, as military personnel who have died were honored for their service. In Meriden, bands and marchers made their way down cordoned off streets, culminating in a gathering in front of the Augusta Curtis Cultural Center across from City Hall on East Main Street. “Let the living not forget the price they paid for our freedom,” said Teb Aub, the Connecticut POW-MIA coordinator, from Madison. Salvatore Lanzofano, of the Knights of Columbus, like the 50 or so others gathered in the seats and on the lawn, listened in rapt attention as speaker after speaker counted off the numbers of men and women of America who lost their lives in wars beginning with the Civil War and continuing to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

WE HAVE BEGUN Southington’s Full-Service Refuse & Recycling Company


The Board of Education voted 6-2 Thursday, May 23, to adopt its $84.23 million budget that includes all-day kindergarten but scraps positions of two teachers who help administer the SOAR Enrichment Program at the middle school and high school levels. School Superintendent Joseph Erardi presented his plan to balance the budget by making up the $1.1 million the Town Council reduced from his original proposal of $85,333,204 for 2013-14. Erardi took out $18,000 in workers’ compensation, $25,000 in unemployment compensation, $295,000 in health insurance costs, $11,840 in oil costs, $18,200 in custodial services, $4,320 for desks at Southington High School, $26,500 in transportation, and $125,886 in special education outplacement tuition. After all of that, he still needed to find more than $720,000 in savings, so he reduced the budget by $93,500 for two specialists who run the SOAR program. He also took out $20,107 for half of

the salary of a literacy specialist at the high school, and $48,274 for a science coordinator. Those positions will be reduced to half a year and will begin in January. Other adjustments included $250,000 cut from school supplies, $70,832 expected from state grants for special education, and $239,168 left in a fund balance. Erardi also explained additional spending that was needed, including $8,925 to make up for underfunding in adult education and $138,180 for full-time equivalent positions to cover enrollment shifts in grades 1 to 5. Erardi said he doesn’t support any of the reductions in this budget, but he had to make some tough decisions. “The proposal before you allows us to grow an all-day K program at the sacrifice of

Developer adjusts plan for Southington site By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Chaplinsky hopes a “nice tenant with a big name” would be a plus for the area. The lot is across from Friendly’s Restaurant, Wood-n-Tap Bar & Grill, a super market and a few other businesses.

Plans for a restaurant at 365 Queen St., just south of Loper St., have changed to include a multitenant building with a medical office, drivethrough restaurant, and retail space. Galaxy Development Group LLC, of Manchester, presented site plan modifications to the Planning and Zoning Commission that would change the use of the building from a sit-down restaurant to a structure with three businesses. This would change the dimensions of the building from a 7,500-square-foot restaurant to a 11,000-square-foot multitenant building. The drive-through restaurant is proposed to be Panera Bread, a bakery and cafe that sells soups, sandwiches, and other items. Specifics for the rest of the businesses have yet to be determined. Michael DelSanto, commission chairman, said commission members are open to the changes, but need to

have specifics answered. Commissioners asked how business would change with a drive-through attached and wanted to know about the entrance, exit, turning radius, parking, hours of operations, aesthetics of the building, and landscaping. The issue was tabled until the next meeting. “The commission had valid points that the drivethrough may increase traffic,” DelSanto said. “We told him to go back and get answers.” “In general, there is a lot of support from the commission on the application,” said Paul Chaplinsky, commission vice chairman. “I think it’s just a matter of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.’’ The 365 Queen St. location used to be the site of a small plaza with a liquor store, diner and a few other businesses. The buildings in the lot have been demolished and there has been a tall, chainlink fence around the property for about a year. “I think the town is ready for that parcel to be devel-

Derynoski Elementary School fourth-grader Alexah Zaczynski wrote a persuasive essay asking Principal Jan Verderame to allow the school to get a gladiator dodgeball pit for the playground. Over the following few months Zaczynski and her friends, Makena Dlugos and Sara Lafontaine, promoted the idea around the school and planned a fundraiser and raised the money for the materials. They recruited their fathers to spend a Saturday building the pit, which is completed and ready to be enjoyed.

Event in Southington to remember Newtown victims By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

Four months ago, Lisa Wrubleski and Erin Furniss had an idea for a townwide event to spread kindness and to remember the victims of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Since then, the support from the community has been overwhelming. Furniss and Wrubleski, who are friends and neighbors, are planning a ceremony on June 15 called Because of 26. They’re planning a communitywide event at which children and their families would plant 26 butterfly bushes along the Rails to Trails path and money would be raised for a memorial statue for the 20 children and six adults killed in the

Dec. 14 shootings. About $4,000 has been raised so far for a memorial statue, with support coming from people across the state and even from the United Kingdom. The event’s Facebook page, Because of 26, had 475 followers as of May 29. Wrubleski and Furniss often update the page with different ideas and announcements. Recently, Wrubleski posted that they were looking for people to make butterflies out of yarn to hang on poles, trees, and bushes at the event. The idea came from the night before the Apple Harvest Festival parade, when crocheted apples were hung on all the trees on the Town Green. A group of women from the UK expressed interest






and said they would make some and send them over. “It’s getting so exciting,” Wrubleski said. “We are so thrilled at the support we’ve received, not only in town, but all over the world.” Butterflies are a symbol of eternal life, the reason Furniss and Wrubleski chose them as a theme. The two women have also been working with Mary De-

Croce, chairwoman of Southington Community Cultural Arts, a nonprofit, to create a mural of 26 butterflies painted on one of the buildings that faces the trail. Twenty-six artists have been selected to create the different butterflies, and the painting has started. The 26 butterflies will be added to the mural on the day of the event. Children will also be

EXTREME CHIROPRACTIC Chiropractic treatment largely focuses its efforts on the spine because it is concerned with the free flow of nerve energy that travels through the spinal cord and branches out between openings in the vertebrae. However, that does not mean that chiropractors are limited to treating the spine and back. Quite the contrary, chiropractic treatment can exert its healthful effects anywhere in the body that is controlled and managed by nerve energy, including the extremities. For instance, nerves exiting at the to of the thoracic region of the spine serve the hands, and those leaving through the lumbar area help control the legs. By concentrating their efforts on resolving impingements at these specific exit points, chiropractic can have far-reaching results. Your chiropractor offers health solutions without the use of drugs or surgery. Call our clinic, located at 200 Queen St., at (860) 621-2225 for an appointment. Our office offers the latest state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques. Our mission is to improve the quality of you and your family’s health and well-being. The answers you need. The care you deserve. P.S. In essence, the spinal cord is an extension of the brain, which further divides into nerves that control organ and system functions.

Riccio is Southington’s paraprofessional of the year By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen

After 13 years working at the high school as a paraprofessional, Cathy Riccio was recently honored for her dedication and named Southington’s 2014 Paraprofessional of the Year. On Monday, School Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi Jr. and Martin Semmel, principal of Southington High School, along with a few other school officials surprised Riccio with the news during a classroom lesson. “I was shocked,” Riccio said. “I wanted to cry, it was really cute.” In 2000, Riccio started as a paraprofessional in the cafeteria and moved to special education in 2004. She helps teachers instruct subjects to students of all ages in the high school. Talking with different students and teachers every day in a school with thousands of students is a part of the job she loves.

Nancy Chiero, a special education teacher at the high school, has worked with Riccio for the past nine years. “She’s an inspiration to me,” Chiero said. “She makes me a better teacher by working with me. What she offers to students and teachers is invaluable.” Chiero said Riccio is always there when she needs her and is “one step ahead” in the classrooms when teachers need her help. “She has exhibited the skill set required of such an employee by supporting academics, ensuring safety of the students, and collaborating with faculty so that not only her assigned students, but also the students in the classroom she is in, strive for academic excellence,” Erardi said in a press release. Although she was honored for her hard work and dedication to the students, Riccio said the award represented all the paraprofessionals she

Relay team races for a cure, literally By Julie Sopchak The Southington Citizen

Foxy’s Paws for a Cause Relay for Life team is literally racing for a cure as team members are piecing together their own version of The Amazing Race, a scavenger hunt contest based on the television show. Team co-captain Kimberly Beaudoin said the team, which represents Plantsville Elementary School, tries to do at least one fundraiser a month. Involved with the Relay for four years, Beaudoin said this is her first time as a

member of Foxy’s Paws for a Cause. Beaudoin said the idea for the race came up at a team meeting, where fellow co-captain Allyson Genovese made the suggestion to try coordinating their own race. “I would say it would be very similar to a scavenger hunt, with a twist,” Genovese said. Teams of two will be given a clue at the start of the race. From there, they will have to solve or complete a task in order to advance to the next location. Each location, or pit stop, will yield a new challenge.


FREE Initial Consultation

The first team to reach each pit stop will receive a prize, and the grand prize for reaching the finish line first is an overnight trip to New York City, including dinner and a Broadway show for two as well as some extra cash. “I think we’re up for it,” Beaudoin said. “And I think it’s gonna be one of the best fundraisers I’ve ever been a part of.” Genovese works as a local fitness model and is active in charity work, but said she has also lost several family members and friends to cancer. This is her first year participating on a Relay for Life team. In particular, she said she will be walking 24 hours consecutively in honor of her mother. “She can go through chemo and go through everything she has,” Gen-

ovese said. “The least I can do is be on that track for 24 hours and raise as much money as I possibly can.” Beaudoin said pretty much everyone in her immediate family has been diagnosed. Her father died of lung cancer nine years ago and her mother is a colon cancer survivor. “I’m just waiting for the day I get the diagnosis, and I’m ready for it,” Beaudoin said. “I’m gonna fight.” Registration for teams will be accepted until Monday, June 3. To register, email foxyspawsforacause, or contact Beaudoin at (860) 877-4409. There is a registration fee. Volunteers are also needed at each pit stop. The race will be held Saturday, June 15, 9 a.m. beginning at Plantsville Elementary School.

Being a fan of The Amazing Race, Beaudoin thought to herself, “This is the best fundraising idea I’ve ever heard of.” “We have great ideas for different challenges,” Beaudoin said. “I can [say] it’s similar to the show in the fact that there will be some physical challenges and there will be some mental challenges.” Beaudoin said the team went door to door to about 20 businesses around Southington, asking if they would be willing to participate in the race as pit stops. The Southington race will differ from the show in that in the show, teams have to complete a number of challenges to reach one pit stop, and then another set of challenges to reach the finish line. This race will have a pit stop for each clue.

Registration forms for the “Summer Hoops” basketball program through Southington Youth Basketball are now available online and at the Southington Parks and Recreation office, 75 Main St. This program is for Southington youth entering grades 5 through 8 in the fall of 2013. Games will be played on Wednesday (rain dates – Thursdays) from 6 to 9 p.m., at Panthorn Park for seven weeks beginning July 10th. Teams will be chosen each week during the program. There will be no tryouts. Forms must be submitted by June 20th; Forms and checks (made payable to “SYBA”) should be mailed to Southington Youth Basketball, P.O. Box 28, Southington, CT 06489. For information call the Parks and Recreation office at (860) 276-6219 or visit the department’s webpage at

Erardi gets sense of satisfaction from 2012-13 year By Farrah Duffany Special to The Citizen As the end of the school year nears, School Superintendent Joseph V. Erardi Jr. says 2012-13 has been a year in which many hurdles have been encountered, but he is pleased with the progress made on the goals he and the Board of Education set. He called the goals “aggressive” and said it took a real team effort to meet them. Much has been accomplished this school year. In November, the administration presented a feasibility study on cost, space analysis, transportation and curriculum analysis for the proposed full-day kindergarten program.

volved, and Erardi will speak at the event. “Although clearly the inception of the activity is from the tragedy at Newtown, it is not about tragedy,” Erardi said. “It’s about a community going forward and doing the right thing all the time.” On May 29 at 5:30 p.m., Wrubleski and Furniss will be selling 200 butterfly kits at Pilgrim Furniture and asking families to take them home, raise them, and bring them back the day of the event to be released. “Everything is coming together,” Furniss said. “I’m just really excited for this day, for the Southington day of kindness, and to see the community come out. It’s so heartwarming.” People who want to contribute can go to any Wells Fargo bank and donate to the Because of 26 memorial fund, or send checks to P.O. Box 263, Plantsville, CT 06479.

Technology also remains a priority, with pilot programs implemented across all grade levels. School safety, always a concern, came to the forefront after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December left 20 children and six adults dead. Erardi said he was proud of the enhanced partnership with the Police Department on student safety. “The big thing that Dr. Erardi always says is (that) his goals are our goals,” Brian Goralski, the Board of Edu-

sion 2020 plan. Erardi assembled the group of teachers in the fall as part of his plan to look into the future and keep up with changes in technology and the workforce. The goal was to determine the skills students will need and what they will likely face in the working world in 2020. In March the teachers made a comprehensive presentation to the school board in which they surveyed community members, businesses owners and others to see what students will need. “The piece that is special

to me is not only the end product, but how it was produced with the long-term planning,” Erardi said. “I’m pleased and proud of that committee.” “I think it’s a great plan, but it’s a plan that needs to be followed through on,” Derynoski said. “I think he’s got all the pieces in place.” Goralski said “a lot got done” this school year and that Southington is “fortunate” to have Erardi as a leader because of all the work and effort he puts into making the school district better.

Cancer survivor demonstrates she is ‘sew’ strong

As a retired home economics teacher and lifelong sewer, Mary DeBisschop has been quilting for the past 20 years. When Mary chose the fabrics for this quilt, she noticed them even though they were brighter than what she would usually choose. Last summer, in the beginning phases of the sewing this quilt, she received a call from her doctor informing her that she had cancer. The quilt fabric was in her hand when the call came in. Throughout her treatment, she continued her work on the quilt. Looking back, she found it symbolic that she had chosen those bright colors as they were a testament to what she went through during treatment. After Mary’s treatment for cancer was complete, she read about the Y’s Livestrong program for cancer survivors in the newspaper and felt that the program would work for

She said, “When the quilt was finished, I realized that things happen for a reason. Quilting is a labor of love and I sensed this quilt was meant to be given to help others.” Mary graciously donated this quilt to help other survivors gain strength through the Livestrong at the YMCA program. The quilt was be raffled off at the Southington Community Y. Proceeds benefitted

On May 15, the DePaolo Middle School Asset Building Classroom team brought 18 students to the YMCA Learning Center for the asset of the month “Youth as Resource.” The students read the story Monsters Don’t Eat Broccoli to the 3-and 4year-olds and then made paper bag monsters together. Both age groups enjoyed the time together talking, laughing and creating the monsters.

ing to friends and families. Bands from Southington High School and Kennedy Middle School played patriotic songs. The crowd stood and cheered the service men and women who passed. The color guard opened the memorial service following the parade, and wreaths were laid on the memorial walls. A Southington High School student sang the national anthem and the Knights of Columbus placed a white cross under a flag at half-staff for those who gave their lives in service. In Wallingford, the Memorial Day parade actually started marching in January. David Holloway, the chairmen of the Veterans Memorial Committee said, “It’s been going exceptionally smooth this year. We used to have the ceremony at the end of the parade, but now it’s before it starts.” Holloway said the reason for doing so is because of the weather and the cooler temperatures in the morning. Holloway was in the Navy for 27 years, on active duty and reserve. He was a building chief in the Navy Seabees construction battalion. “I went around the world See Memorial next page

When a retired veteran played taps on a bugle, nearly everyone stood up, many placing their hands or hats over their hearts and bowing their heads to the melancholy tune signaling the end of life. In Southington, residents turned out in force for the parade, which started at 10:30 a.m. Chairs lined both sides of the Southington Green, where the parade ended and a memorial service was held. Southington residents Lisa Aszklar and Stephen Tarantino were at the American Legion building early to look at the brick they purchased in honor of their father’s service in the U.S. Army. John Tarantino served in the Vietnam War, and this past weekend went to Washington, D.C., with his family for the first time. “It’s been the most wonderful weekend, thanks to them,” John Tarantino said about his family. John Tarantino said his favorite thing in Washington was the wall honoring the Vietnam veterans, the ceme-

tery, and the changing of the guard. Aszklar said her favorite thing was seeing her father’s reaction to everything, especially the memorial brick. Children were running around the closed streets before the parade started, many wearing red, white and blue outfits. Kathy Chiulli, of Southington, was at the parade with her three sons, Nathan, Justin and Derek. Nathan said he was most excited about the firetrucks. Laurie Holmes came to the Southington Green to see her son, Sgt. Sean Caven, march in the parade. Holmes, of East Hartford, said Caven enlisted when he was 17, with her permission, following the 9/11 attacks. Caven, who served a tour in Iraq in 2009, has just re-enlisted for another seven years. “I am so proud of him,” Holmes said. “He loves representing his country.” The parade reached the Green at about 10:40 and included representatives from the Knights of the Columbus, the American Legion, and police and fire departments. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts walked down the road, wav-

Symposium on aging

Continued from page 10

An exploration of the community’s readiness to meet the needs of the older population will be presented at the Symposium on Aging, Tuesday, June 4, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Orchards at Southington, 34 Hobart St. Topics include: What are the issues? What is Southington’s “Livability Index?” What are the current resources? What next steps will best position Southington as an “aging-ready” community? Providing insights and facilitating discussion will be senior care and home- and community-based providers, clergy, foundations and others who seek to provide the best possible solutions for the community. Among those participating will be several of the authors and the men and women they interviewed for the book, “From i-Grandma to Medicare: Essays on Aging by Central Connecticut State University Students and Seniors of Southington.” The publication will be available at the event. Symposium on Aging is being offered to home- and community-based providers, clergy, foundations and media only. Refreshments and lunch will be served. For more information, call Julie Norko, (203) 394-8248. This event is sponsored by Central Connecticut Senior Health Services, United Way of Southington, and The Orchards at Southington, all not-for-profits.

four times and I came back in Wallingford. It just appeals to me, the people and the whole way of life,” Holloway said. He has been involved with the Veterans Memorial Committee for most of his life. George Messier, a retired major in the Marines, welcomed everyone to the parade by first noting 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg in the Civil War. “We are here for our fallen veteran brothers every year,” said Jim Dumaine, a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 591 in Wallingford. “Memorial Day is not Veterans Day. We are here for the guys that didn’t come back.” For families attending the event, it wasn’t just a parade, but more a family tradition. Sue Economopoulos lived in Wallingford for 40 years and

has attended the parade ever since her kids were little. On Monday, she was with her granddaughters and daughter. “I’ve been doing this for years and it is such a beautiful day,” Economopoulos said. “I love to watch it and see all the bands.” Economopoulos was with her 7-year-old granddaughter, Dori Madnecy, who said, “It’s fun and entertaining. I like watching it with my friends.” Pat Kissane, of Meriden, was with his wife and 2-yearold daughter, Bailey. “It’s a beautiful day,” he said. “I got a nice day off from work and it’s great to see all the music, sights and sounds.” Bailey was looking forward to one thing, “to see the drums.” Veterans, marching bands and color guards from Sheehan High School and Lyman

Hall, Dag and Moran Middle School, along with the Wallingford Fire and Police departments and local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops started at Dutton Park marching down North Main Street, to the center of town, concluding the parade at Doolittle Park. Lisa Lyon was with her two sons at the parade. “It’s a good family parade to honor the veterans,” she said. “There really is a lot of community support within the event.”

Church Women United honor May Friendship Day By Robin Lee Michel Special to the Citizen

Church Women United of the Southington area were “Swinging Wide Doors of Hospitality,” keeping with the theme of May Friendship Day, as they welcomed guests on May 17 at Plantsville Congregational Church. More than 80 women from various local churches gathered for dinner and celebration to honor their own who have dedicated themselves to community service and helping others. Among those congratulated for receiving the Christ-

ian Service Award for their respective churches were: JoAnn Myska, First Baptist Church; Beverly Huber, First Congregational Church of Southington; Dot Novak, First Lutheran Church; Diane Hodgkins, Holy Trinity Church; Wendy Fortin and Marcia Smith, Plantsville Congregational Church; Marion Gifford, St. Dominic Church; and Roberta Vendetti, St. Thomas Church. Each woman received a corsage and a certificate of appreciation after a representative from their respective churches presented a short biography, telling

about the service selflessly given. All honorees were integral in ensuring the success of children’s programs such as Vacation Bible School, church fairs and events, fundraisers or visitation, the presenters said. Nancy Kannenberg, a member of Plantsville Congregational Church, presided over the event, which also included prayer, worship, song and the traditional Fellowship of the Least Coin Offering, during which people donate pennies. High-schoolers Matt Schmidt and Lizzie Gutowski, also of the Plantsville church, presented a skit based on Revelation 3:20: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person.” May Friendship Day is celebrated by Church Women United units across the world, all using the same pro-

all into your group, into your faith community, and into your heart. Love your God, your neighbor, and yourself – for God is love.”

The Great Gatsby Returns in 3D Tanya Feke M.D. Special to The Citizen

There is an inherent risk in taking a literary classic and twisting it with anachronistic flare. Certainly, eyebrows were raised in 1996 when a certain director dared to bring Shakespeare to the big screen with a gunbrandishing gang and an edgy soundtrack underscored by the original words of the bard himself. Romeo and Juliet bore a creative genius, a reminder that a good story is truly timeless. That film director was Baz Luhrmann, and in The Great Gatsby, he reunites with his former Romeo, Leonardo DiCaprio. Comparisons skew perceptions, and with four onscreen renditions of The

Great Gatsby, five now with Luhrmann’s opus, there are sure to be naysayers. Most of us cringe when a remake of a film, or even a song, is brought center stage. Familiar with one version, instinct draws us to believe the original must be better or best. Sometimes that is true, but without opening our eyes to possibility, we could miss a real gem. It is with this mindset that I approached this latest and “great”-est from this fearless and often bizarre visionary. The end result is exponential extravagance. The characters never approach any personal depth but instead portray glossy replicas of an era, caricatures of ideas, amidst the frenetic energy of Luhrmann’ play

land. The themes, not the players, are the main course. From the decadent costumes to the bedazzling sets, Luhrmann colors every scene with shades of vibrant color and sound. Music strokes the canvas with rabid delight – Jay-Z, Beyonce, Florence and the Machine,, Fergie, Bryan Ferry. Emeli Sande’s “Crazy in Love” was so gorgeously remastered it blew my mind and became an instant staple on my iTunes. The 3D too, while not essential, captured the free-spirited Moulin Rouge verve that put the director on the map. Visually and technically, no one can deny the film is stunning. But The Great Gatsby is not all flash and mirrors. The human heart is readily

on display. In one scene, sheer white curtains billow through a room from every angle, winds blowing in through open doors. The effect is at once sensuous and dizzying with beauty. A woman’s hand stretches into the center of the screen with an audible sigh. Softness, lightness, hopefulness, the stage is set to introduce Daisy. Then the doors are shut, and the curtains fall flat in foreshadowing of how she will later close her heart to true love. Which brings us to Jay Gatsby himself. Despite his layered secrets, his soul is pure and driven by dreams, corrupted only by his own insecurity. My heart breaks when he says “I didn’t want you to think I was just some nobody”. It is this pining for acceptance on which the story takes hold. Gatsby represents not only a man in search of his lost love but a representation of our society at large. Materialism has gripped modern civilization with false reassurances that with things come success and glory. What we must remember is

that we are worthy in and of ourselves. When Gatsby breaks his formality with the crack of a smile or a twinkle of his eyes, when he playfully tosses shirts from every color of the rainbow over a balcony, he not only symbolically relinquishes all that money has brought to him but also reminds us that happiness comes from within. It is a joyous moment. One should hardly place Leonardo DiCaprio side by side with Robert Redford for a direct comparison because they portray entirely different men with the same character name. Both are handsome, yes, and both are debonair, yes, but one is more serious, the other more surreal. DiCaprio’s Gatsby challenges the heart within us with a lightheartedness of being that tells us to believe that good things will come ... even if they don’t. Old sport, I would still have loved to have attended one of your parties. An absolute must see. The Great Gatsby: 4 stethoscopes

The Southington Citizen — Friday, May 31, 2013


Voted Best Burger in Southington

2 0 1 3


The Secret of Our Award Winning Taste That’s our promise to you. It’ll be the best seven minute wait of your life. Our Pop wouldn’t have it any other way. His name is on the sign. It’s our sign of pride. A constant reminder of our heritage. We think of it as the gold standard for burger lovers everywhere. And our fries are equally singular in freshness, quality and taste. Our fries are cut from farm fresh potatoes each morning by hand. One potato at a time. Then they are timed

cooked to perfection in their skins in natural peanut oil. Nothing less would pass our standards nor would complement our burgers better. And two words about our hand scooped and individually blended milkshakes: try one. Taste is everything. That’s the secret to winning awards.

Call Ahead And Avoid The Wait

Open Everyday 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM

979 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike | Plantsville, CT 06479 | 860-426-9998 |


Not all hamburgers are created equal. We have tested and re-tested our burgers, drawing from an old family recipe to add the right amount of the right spices to bring out those taste tempting flavors that tantalize as well as satisfy. Our burgers are made fresh each day. Every day. No exceptions. Nothing is ever frozen. Ever. This ensures that every burger is the best you can buy. That’s why we don’t have any freezers. Burger making is an art. Each of our burgers is grilled to order. That’s the reason we don’t have a drive thru window either. Perfection takes time.

With Mom at Masonicare, we don’t

have to worry about a thing.”

Jean Kaas and her late husband always taught their children the importance of planning ahead. And Jean’s family couldn’t be happier that she took her own advice. A West Haven native, Jean moved to Masonicare’s independent living community, Ashlar Village, in 2000. After twelve enjoyable years there, Jean and her family realized she needed a higher level of care. Jean now resides at Masonicare Health Center, where residents with progressed memory loss receive specialized, round-the-clock support. Jean’s daughter Karen says, “My brothers and I are so thankful that Mom is at Masonicare. It’s very comforting to see how much the staff cares about her. They keep her involved in activities and really enjoy her sense of humor. They treat her and us just like family.” Jean’s family also appreciates the full continuum of healthcare services and specialists available on-site. “Thanks to the Masonicare staff and mom’s planning ahead, we don’t have to worry about a thing.”

Susi, Blue Knights sink Newtown By John Pettit Special to The Citizen

Even with an 11-run lead, Southington baseball coach Charlie Lembo trotted ace pitcher Brett Susi back out on the mound for the seventh inning Tuesday afternoon, May 28, against Newtown. Lembo wasn’t about to take any chances in the opening game of the CIAC Class LL state tournament.

“Even though we got all those runs in the sixth, his pitch count was pretty low,” Lembo said. “Plus, I didn’t really want to take the time to bring another guy in with the rain and all. I wanted to get us out of here before the mound got worse. Brett pitched great, he really did.” Susi fired a completegame four-hitter with five strikeouts and two walks as the No. 4 Blue Knights start-

ed the state tourney with an 11-0 blanking of 29th-ranked Newtown at Fontana Field. With the win, Southington (17-3) advanced to today’s second round, where it will host No. 20 Brien McMahon of Norwalk, a 5-2 winner over No. 13 Hall on Tuesday. Susi, who is heading to Central Connecticut State University, needed just 82 pitches to complete the shutout.

Moquin near perfect for SHS Record-Journal staff The top-ranked Southington softball team opened the state tournament in nearperfect fashion on Tuesday. Senior ace Jordyn Moquin twirled a nohitter with four strikeouts and one walk to lead the Blue Knights to a 7-0 victory over No. 32 Shelton in the first round of the CIAC Class LL state tournament. Moquin, whose teammates played errorless softball behind her, walked Shelton’s Alexandra Mingolello to lead off the fifth inning. Catcher Rachel Harvey promptly picked off Mingolello at first as Moquin

(20-1) faced the minimum 21 batters in a steady rain. “Jordyn was excellent,” Southington coach John Bores said. “We played great defense. We made all the plays and we also had 10 hits, so I was happy with that.” Moquin contributed two singles and three RBIs to her pitching gem. Sydney Ferrante went 4-for-4 with a double, triple and RBI. “We’re building momentum,” said Bores, whose team improved to 20-1 overall and hosts No. 17 Newtown in the second round today at 4 p.m. Shelton ended its season at 8-13 overall.

He also helped himself by going 2-for-2 with two singles and three RBIs, while his teammates supported him by turning three double plays and exploding for eight runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. “I threw all right,” Susi said. “I was a little all over the place to start the game. I don’t think I pitched my best, but I did enough to get us the win. That’s all I was worried about. The double plays were huge and, with a lineup like

this, you wait for that big explosion. We have the capability to do that every single game. You love it as a pitcher because it obviously takes a lot of pressure off.” Southington, which scored twice in the first inning, led just 3-0 heading into its sixth. The Knights had five hits and sent 12 batters to the plate against three Newtown pitchers in the frame.

“In the tournament, and in baseball, you need the confidence at the plate,” Lembo said. “We were hitting the ball hard through the first three, four innings, but only had two runs to show for it. You’re not trying to put it on another team and run (the score) up, but we’ve also got guys going to the plate and they want to the swing the bats and I think confidence gets you going in a short tournament like this.” Dave Palladino singled twice in the big inning, while Andrew Goralski ripped a three-run double and Justin Rose blasted a two-run homer for Southington. “We are always confident as a team,” Rose said. “We have a good pitching rotation, we have a solid defense and hopefully the big inning will carry over to (today).” Pat Mullins (4-2) took the loss for Newtown, which ended its season at 8-13 overall. He went five innings and allowed five runs on eight hits with two strikeouts and three walks. Reid Schmidt doubled for the Nighthawks’ only extra-base hit. “We definitely competed,” Newtown coach Matt Memoli said. “We battled. Their kid

The Dodgers have been mathematically eliminated from the No. 1 seed. Angels 8, Athletics 2 (May 15) Angels: Calvin Gumprecht hit an RBI double that would be the eventual game winning run, only to be topped by a homerun at his next at bat. Other bats that contributed at the plate were Will Downes, Johnny Simard, Ryan Mikosz, Jake Romano, and Jake Miceli. Defensively, the Angels were led by Jake Romano on the mound in an excellent outing. Rob Fantoli closed the game.

Velez, Ryan Mikosz, Johnny Simard, and Jake Romano. The offensive charge was led by Jake Romano, going 3-for-3 at the plate, and Will Downes, who hit a double and a triple. Calvin Gumprecht, Ryan Mikosz, and RJ Taylor also contributed hits. White Sox: Matty Biscoglio pitched four strong innings for the Sox, whose offense was led by Nate Korngiebel who went 3-for-3 at the plate.

Brett Hunter, Verrilli and Brennan turned a 4-6-3 double play late in the game with the bases loaded to end the Dodgers’ threat.

Dodgers 10, White Sox 3 (May 21) Dodgers: Jack Meade pitched four innings with seven strike outs and also went 2-for-2 at the plate with two walks and his second home run of the season.

Verrilli and Jake Beaupre each doubled.


Matt Sirois (RBI) also singled. Lembo, who guided the Blue Knights to the LL state finals and semifinals, respectively, in his first two seasons, said first-round games are usually the most difficult. “The kids might have a little bit of nerves,” he explained. “(It’s) the unknown. A lot of times, you’re playing a team you haven’t seen before. Newtown was 8-12, but you never know. You could run into a kid who is just a stud pitcher who won all eight of their games. The first game is always the toughest. I think every coach in the state will tell you that. Now that that game is over

DiNello ranged far to his left and fired to Susi covering first for the out. “Defensively, we did a pretty good job,” Lembo said. “I think we might lead the state in 4-1 put outs. We work on it every day at practice. It’s nice, as a coach, to see all the hard work that these kids put in and then they go out in the game and they do it. As a coach, you really like to see that.” Brett Shaw finished with two singles for Southington. Rose, Ted Shaw, DiNello and

with, the second game, to me, is now the toughest.” Susi, who improved to 8-0 with the win, said he definitely wanted the complete game despite owning a big lead. He got the chance to pitch to his younger brother Zach, a sophomore catcher, in the final inning for the first time in his varsity career. “Brett’s ERA was at .088 before (Tuesday) and it’s only going down,” said Lembo, who will start Rivera (5-2) on the hill today against Brien McMahon.

Chase student rank nationally as equestrian

All-Connecticut Academic team

In between school, homework, sports and myriad other extracurricular activities, Chase Collegiate School, Waterbury, student pursues her other passion—horseback riding. The student—Jenna Blocher, a 5th grader from Southington, is not just a leisure rider, she is a champion. Blocher was recently ranked in the Status of Saddle Horse Reports as a top 10 champion in the Classic Saddle Seat Equitation Division. These points were compiled from 250 horse shows across the country and tabulated to show the top riders in the country. Blocher, who started riding when she was just four years old, rode each show with her horse Answer the Call AKA “Stewie.” In October 2012, Blocher competed in the World Championships in Oklahoma City and won top five in both divisions of her equitation classes. This summer, as a testament to her dedication, the day after school is out, Blocher will be competing in the First Connecticut Morgan at the Big East Fair in West Springfield.

Tunxis Community College student Naomi Lemire, of Southington was one of 16 outstanding students from the Connecticut Community Colleges to be named to the All-Connecticut Academic Team during a recognition ceremony on April 26 at the State Capitol. The All-Connecticut Academic Team recognizes the outstanding scholarly achievements and leadership accomplishments of students enrolled in Connecticut’s commu- Lemire nity and junior colleges. The students chosen for the state team also represented the state of Connecticut in the All-USA Academic Competition. “It came as a huge surprise, and is a wonderful confirmation of all the hard work I’ve accomplished over the past two years,” said Lemire, a liberal arts and sciences major and president of Phi Theta Kappa’s Alpha Iota Alpha chapter at Tunxis. “I have had the most incredible community college experience, which has given me opportunities to be a leader, make great friends, and develop skills I will carry with me throughout my life.” Lemire will graduate in May and plans to transfer to Trinity College or Quinnipiac University where she will pursue a degree in English and creative writing. She wants to become an author and possibly teach at the college level in the future. Lemire continues to work part-time as a dance instructor and choreographer while attending Tunxis.
